Rockaway Teen Shot Visiting Redfern Cousin
An Arverne teen, visiting his cousin at 1270 Redfern Avenue in Far Rockaway early Wednesday morning, was shot in the leg as he entered the building.
According to police sources, Julian Mosely, who lives on Beach 56 Street, entered the lobby of the building in the Redfern houses at about 12:30 a.m. As he was entering the building’s elevator, Mosely noticed another young man, who he could not identify, enter the lobby behind him.
Mosley reportedly had a confrontation with the man, who had a gun. During the physical confrontation, a shot was fired, striking Mosely in the leg. The shooter reportedly fled the scene and Mosely contacted a relative who called police.
Police fanned out throughout the building, but could not find the shooter.
Detectives from the 101 Precinct Squad are investigating. Police declined to speculate on a motive for the shooting.
Mosley’s wound is not life-threatening.
